HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

These books housed in our library will serve as powerful tools in enabling students to gain a better understanding of both their own culture and the cultures of others.

DESCRIPTION

Storytelling is one of the easiest and accessible approaches for teaching race, equity, diversity and inclusion. Please help Sportsmen’s expand our library by hosting a multicultural book drive for our youth. Books like these not only allow children to see themselves on the pages, but also help them understand that despite our many differences, all people share common feelings and aspirations.


ITEMS NEEDED

Collection bin, and perhaps a box to ship.
